Welcome to brief online guide through different breast implants sizes.
Implant size is usually measured in cubic centimeters and implants are produced in many various sizes. For example 175cc, 280cc, 371cc, 400cc …
Why are not breast implants distinguished by bra size?
The reason, why there are no “B”, “C” or “D” cup size implants, is simple. Total breast size will consist of breast tissue that woman had prior surgery plus the implant size. If you already had C cups before augmentation, total size will be different after using 280cc implant from the situation when woman had only A cups.
Size is not the only dimension you have to choose when deciding which implants to get. There is also so called profile, which we cover in separate article here.
What size of breast implant do I need to go from 32A to 32C (or 32D etc)?
This can’t be easily calculated, since it depends on many various factors. Simply speaking, how implants and the natural tissue will stack together. But surgeon should be able to give you at least approximate estimate after seeing your current bust. Usually 250cc – 300cc are big enough to make D cups out of 32AA. But remember that this information is only for basic orientation. For one woman it will be 260cc, for other 280cc and so on.
